Sarawak Laksa is totally different from Penang Assam Laksa. The Sarawak Laksa soup is curry based, with it's own special Sarawak laksa sambal paste. The curry based soup is different from other curry based soup in other states. Sarawak Laksa (meehoon/vermicelli served together with egg shreds, prawns and bean sprouts in a bowl of curry (spicy sarawak laksa sambal paste) based soup with santan/coconut milk. It comes together with a small dish of belachan (shrimp paste) and a squeeze of local lime.) is nice to eat when the laksa is served hot
I had this exactly on the morning prior to my departure back to Penang... I mean four hours prior to my departure :D Must taste this dish even though at the last minute or else I will regret. Hahaha... too much nice food to sample back home in Sarawak and it's impossible to finish savouring all the food. I still missed out some cos I can't eat too much at a time. The Sarawak Laksa I tasted from this particular stall is so-so only. There are nicer one else where.
I have eaten more than a hundred bowls of Sarawak Laksa already, and no doubt it's nice ... But, I still prefer Penang Assam Laksa compared to Sarawak Laksa :P Anyway, this is just my personal preference.
